* the license in README has a new checksum, it now clarifies
* bump the layer priority otherwise we could not use the latest version,
because the yocto layers have a higher priority
This means that currently only Yocto Dora and Yocto Master are
being targeted. The amount of maintenance to get it to work on
Edison again is too high and it is better to focus on a systemd
only world. Remove the symlinks for yocto-edison.
A quick look and some notes from henning pointed me to wget
which is in the default layers, the sysmobts-2050 which is now
handle dby sysmobts and some older notes that are unlikely
to be addressed.
* split out rtl-nic firmware from the big
[hfreyther: For whatever reasons the NIC works without
additional firmware as well. I couldn't see in the driver
source when that is the case and which features are missing]
We want to enable the watchdog in the bootloader already and
for this to be failsafe we need to have a kernel that can boot
and get ethernet without any additional modules. Now systemd
would not be able to trigger the watchdog and the system would
reboot within 60 seconds. I am not sure how the kernel upgrade
will go and we need to try this.
We are currently using 1.5 (dora). Copy the bbappends to the
yocto-dizzy directory and update the version numbers. For busybox
enable all features that were enabled between dora and origin/master.
For opkg_svn.bbapend. In dizzy there is a version attached to it.
This means we need to remove it from the yocto-shared directory
and keep it everywhere else.
* use seperate defconfig, because of option changed from 2.6.39 to 3.10
* use python magic to switch between linux and linux-sysmocom
* add sysmocom-bsc to compatible machines for linux-sysmocom
* add new confiugration parameters for syslinux
This currently requires the meta-ti layer but we will make sure
that nothing from it will be required in the end. The kernel is
based on linux-3.2 as this is the "default" TI kernel that supports
the SGX (not that we care)
* The Linux 3.2.X kernel has some funny issues with GCC 4.8 in the
fs/namei.c look up code. It is easier to move to 3.10 than to fully
debug the issue.
* disable the mISDN loop patch for v3.10
* use the hack to make v3.2 compilable for edison and v3.10 for dora
Provide custom systemd config files to enable the watchdog handling. For
systemd we depend on the image containing and using systemd as init script.
In case we build images without systemd we will need to install the
old watchdog. Maybe it is time to create a MACHINE_FEATURE for watchdog.
The rootfs in the UBI is configured to grow to the full size of the
UBI, currently these are 999 LEBs (when there is no kernel volume)
but we had limited the LEBs the filesystem can hold to 400. After
this change the filesystem will grow from the 42MB to more than 120
I'm not sure if we really want to have a rootfs of that size but we
can at least experiment with it and see if the failure rate is changing
The modules depend on kernel-base (renamed kernel-3.2.35) package,
the tasks depend on some modules and nothing needed the kernel package.
In OE Core/Poky the machines depend on kernel-modules which will pull
the kernel package into the rootfs. We do it by hand using the essential
depends and bumping the PR for the task-core-boot.
I have verified that on a kernel ugrade task-core-boot will be updated
and the kernel package is installed.
The idea is that the basic extension resides inside the the normal
recipe directories. Depending on the version of poky the bbappends
need to be included. Appends applying to all versions will be put
into the shared folder, specific ones into the specific directory.
Once a bbappend can not be shared anymore it needs to be copied.
